Description

Pinot Noir gives elegance and character, while the Bordeaux varieties are responsible for the flavour profile. Nose begins with spices and toasted nuts closely followed by cherry and other red berry fruits. The aromas are complemented with some vegetal tones and the aftertaste shows some smokiness as well. An exciting wine.
